Jordan sends 14-truck convoy aid to quake-hit Syria


Jordan’s Foreign Ministry says that the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation (JHCO) has dispatched a 14-truck convoy loaded with medicines, food, blankets and drinking water to quake-hit Syria.

The ministry said in a statement that the aid would be delivered to the devastated regions in Syria through the cross-border transport system.

The Higher Relief Committee in Syria received seven trucks of aid from the JHCO, while the United Nations agencies operating in Syria received another seven trucks to be distributed to the affected people, the statement added.

Sinan Al-Majali, the ministry’s spokesperson, stressed that the kingdom continues to provide assistance and support for Syria to deal with the consequences of the recent earthquakes.

Northern Syria was hit hard by the 7.7- and 7.6-magnitude earthquakes centered in southeastern Türkiye on Feb. 6, in which about 7,000 people in Syria’s government- and rebel-held areas were killed. ■
